As for me, I want the ability to merge old increments, such that beyond

frequent enough changes that the same regions will be modified multiple
times during the course of a week, such combination will indeed decrease
(in some cases nontrivially) the amount of data being archived.
For the people that voted for repository editing, what did you want
Yes. I'm storing backups from potentially a very large number of remote
systems, and space is very much a potential issue.
Also more generally, why do you want to edit an existing repository?
Is it to save disk space?
